MANCHESTER, N.H. — Police say they have made an arrest in a Manchester bank robbery shortly after the crime occurred.
Thirty-nine-year-old John Faucher was arrested Monday afternoon.
He’s accused of robbing the TD Bank on Franklin Street shortly after noon on Monday. Police say he passed a note to a teller saying he had a weapon and demanded cash and then made off with an undisclosed amount of money.
Police say three minutes after a description of the suspect was broadcast to police, an officer saw a man walking who fit that description. Faucher was arrested. Police say he’s also charged with an attempted armed robbery of a 7-Eleven store on Sept. 28.
It was not immediately known if Faucher, who is homeless, is being represented by an attorney.
